New Megadeth Album “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead” Due Out This Coming Spring


According to a recent feature in American Songwriter, Megadeth‘s long-awaited sixteenth studio album “The Sick, The Dying… And The Dead” will finally see a release this coming spring. Mustaine, who underwent successful treatment for throat cancer in 2019, has revealed that the title and the song of the same name aren’t necessarily about the current COVID-19 pandemic or his own experiences with illness.

Instead, it more broadly covers the various diseases and plagues mankind has endured over the centuries. He stated: “The song itself was a historical journey of how the plague started and where it went, starting with rats on ships carrying the disease, coming ashore in Sicily.”
